These are tough pants that I use while camping, off roading, and doing yard work or work around the house. And I can still go to the store in them without looking sloppy. I know that's not really the intended use for these, but they're versatile and look cool. Compared to denim, these feel a lot tougher yet also more comfortable, and I can tell they're going to last forever. The seam sealed zip pocket is a nice touch too. They're sort of like a more technical and fashionable version of Carhartts.
Spent the day clearing downed trees in one of our maple sugar lots, the Nelson pant took a beating and held up wonderfully. What impressed me most was how comfortable they were, I have never had a pair of work pants feel that good. My only recommendation would be for a more narrow leg opening to eliminate snagging on downed undergrowth. Additionally, follow the size guide, I generally wear a 34 as I like my pants a little loose in the waist, the 32 fit perfectly.
Great Design...Great Material...Great Brand. (As a mountaineering switzerlander I live with "the foehn"...so its a matter of love) BUT Maybe there is a slimfit version of it in the future...bec. even by sizing down the pant gets tighter around the hip but still is too loose for slim legs. The only downer... Cheers from the swiss alps
They have been working really well for me on chilly days. They are a thicker pair of pants with lots of mobility that work great for when I am bouldering. They seem very durable so far and have become my go to pants for climbing on non warm days. High quality and worth the price.
Just received my Nelson pants today and I know they will become a firm favourite. Fit is loose without being baggy. Material has some give without being stretchy. Belt loops are large enough to take a decent size leather belt which is fortunate as the waist runs a little large.
